He told Kent News: "I've had a check-up and the doctors have said everything's cleared up so I can start training again. It's great to be back among the boys with all the banter again.
"The recovery is coming on I'm hoping to be back in the first week in March. That's what I'm aiming for but I've got to take it one training session at a time.
"I have to be very careful and on my first day back the physio had the hump with me because he thought I'd been overdoing it. I felt fine but he said if I push myself too hard I could end up back in hospital, so I've got to be patient."
Meanwhile, the Gills' trip to Notts County, which was postponed last Tuesday because of snow, has been rearranged for Tuesday March 17.
